Butterfly Treat Bag with Martha!

Hi everyone, Martha Lucia here sharing a project that I made using the Catalina Island 400. I created a mini treat bag with a fun note card inside.


To create the mini treat I used a Thinlits dies and I decided to use the polka dots side because the color is perfect for this season. I made a belt with the other side of the paper using a Fair Isle Border Petites and I tied it using a double line of Lilac baker´s Twine.
To decorate the front of my bag I cut from a die cut a butterfly in white cardstock and sponged it with PowderPuff Chalk Ink in colors Sea Foam, Sky Blue, Latte and Sunset. Finally I added the enjoy word, that I cut from a Gypsy Road 400 scrap.

For the inside note card I used two pieces of cardstock for the base and decorated it with a piece of Catalina Island 400 paper. I stamped it with PowderPuff Chalk Ink Evergreen using two different stamps.

Card Inspiration with Alicia

Good morning Quick Quotes readers! Alicia with you today to showcase some more Gypsy Road Collection.  
I have a teenage son and I have been wanting to make him a card with the brick side of the Gypsy Road 200 Paper ever since I first got my hands on it! I also used a few other papers from Gypsy Road collection. 
  • I ripped, inked and distressed the papers with a distressing tool for a youthful, urban masculine card for my son.
  • I primarily inked with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalking Ink but I used the Maraschino Cherry Powder Puff ink to color the chipboard frame as it matched the bricks the best.
  • I used some great sentiment stickers from the Gypsy Road Die Cut Sticker sheet and finally I added some burlap trim, brads, and a strip of washi tape to finish it off.
  • All that is layered on black card stock.
  • I must not forget to add a liner to write on, I often find myself picking up a card where I have waited to make the liner is to be able to stamp a quick "happy birthday" or "congratulations" inside. But I should make them when I create the card to insure matching papers.
  • I could give this card for a number of reasons stamping a more specific sentiment inside.

Let Your Dreams Set Sail with Rhonda

Hi there Quick Quotes friends!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

I have a project to share that features pieces from the April Club Q kits along with a few other Quick Quotes coordinating elements and PowderPuff Chalk Inks of course.

"Let Your Dreams Set Sail"

This month's kits feature the Catalina Island collection and I had a really fun photo of my son that I thought would be a wonderful compliment to colors. I used one of the mini album frames as my mat for the photo.

Some really cute thin circle die cuts are part of the kits and I had to use one!

Here I've used some of my coordinating chipboard and stickers. I loved the cute die cut flowers that are included in the kit and the buttons match perfectly! I used a bit of modeling paste and sprinkled some mist drops on my page as well.  

Some simple stamping helped finish the page.

Gypsy Road Inspiration with Connie

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the new Gypsy Road Collection by Quick Quotes. I had fun with this collection and loved the results of the completed page.

I used border punches and then shaded them with Peach Tree PowderPuff Chalk Ink around the scalloped edges. I loved the look the shading gave the scalloped borders.  It really defined the scallop!!

I used Antique Linen PowderPuff Chalk Ink to lighten the area where I wanted to put the title of the page at. This is my granddaughter ~ Crafty Diva.  She's my kind of girl! 10 years old.

Dance of Butterflies with Martha

Hi everyone, Martha Lucia here with a spring frame that I call Dance of Butterflies.

I made this using scraps of my papers: Catalina Island 200, Gypsy Road 400, Joy Ride 100, Joy Ride 200 and Joy Ride 400 and the PowderPuff Chalk Ink in colors like Seafoam, Sunset, Rusty Nail, Orange Slice, Blue Jeans, Brandywine to stamp my butterflies. I love to create collages or frames that I can change during the year and now that spring has sprung, the colors of the new papers and powderpuff chalk inks are perfect to do it.


To create my collage I used the light side of the Gypsy Road 400. I cut the paper 8"x10" to use as base. Then, using my scraps, I cut the nine circles with a circle framelit. I sponged the borders with coordinating colors of PowderPuff Chalk Ink. After this, I pasted to the base using dimensionals.

To stamp my butterflies I used different colors and different images. In some cases I stamped the image twice to get more dimension and in others I only punched the butterfly in decorated paper.


I decorated each circle with different elements like miniclips, buttons, banners, bakers twine, pearls, rhinestones and staples. I used the same punch to cut the buttlerfly and the same position to keep the concept line.
